Dunhill: Cumberland with Silver (3111) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5792
While we more often see the "11" Lovat design from Dunhill in larger sizes, this delightful rendition comes to us in versatile Group 3 dimensions. The upright bowl houses generous chamber capacity, its rim finished smooth in opposition to the Cumberland sandblast that dresses the rest of the stummel. The comparatively lengthy shank terminates in a stubby saddle stem of brindled, mocha-hued vulcanite, a feature of this special edition, the lighter hued mouthpiece part of a special stock of rods the English marque used for this special edition in place of the dark stems iconic to the Cumberland series. The pipe is further elevated by a shimmering silver band at the shank end.
When Alfred Dunhill released his patented Shell Briar, he forever changed the pipe-smoking world at large. Dunhill has often been credited with being the first to offer sandblasted pipes (arguably the most popular finish today), and the Cumberland finish further displayed Dunhill's innovative spirit. Well received after its release in 1979, the Cumberland series was named for the English marque's warehouse on Cumberland road, and the line's signature, brindled vulcanite stem became so iconic, the warmly striated material is now referred to simply as "cumberland." This rendition is made much more rare by the inclusion of the lighter stem.- Joel Balyeat
